SQ now accepts wild-card filenames and properly handles ITS Binary and
TOPS-20 Binary input files as well as common ASCII text files.
However, if a file with a bytesize of 36 is not an ITS Binary file, it
blindly assumes the file is ASCII, even though the file may be
something else.

USQ (which should be renamed LUSQ to avoid confusion with GZ's far
superior USQ) now also accepts wild-card filenames and still blindly
assumes the output file is an ASCII text file.  (GZ's USQ tries to
guess the output file bytesize.)

Sources and executables are in MICRO: on SIMTEL20.
